The following foundational beliefs guide the Fellow-in-Training (FiT) recruitment and mentoring during this one-year post-professional ACOMPTE accredited program:
- The current entry-level training is insufficient to meet the needs of the complex patient population,
- Immersion into the community is more conducive to achieving the goals of the community-based Pro Bono Physical Therapy Clinic, and
- Advanced clinical reasoning is best understood at the intersection of the biomedical, societal, and individual factors that influence health.
